Deepening our understanding of issues confronting contemporary society
The Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research (GCSCR) is dedicated to increasing our understanding of current challenges facing the modern world. Through the application of innovative humanities and social science research, incorporating the knowledge of academics from a broad range of interrelated disciplines, we are at the cutting edge of humanities and social science discourse. Our Centre's research is focused on the following contemporary themes: History, Media and Change; Mobilities, Communities and In/securities; Heritage and Wellbeing; Language, Culture and Belonging.
We are so excited to announce the success of Centre member Professor Tanya Smith on being awarded an ARC Future Fellowship for her project titled ‘Illuminating behavioural and environmental influences on human development’.
